Valentines Presents / January 10, 2019 / Gladys Hayden
Print a picture on the lid or across the lid and all sides of the sturdy gift box. Available in a selection of sizes the photo gift box is the ideal accompaniment to any gift. You can also create unique Valentines Day cards using any photos captions or text - the only thing that limits you when designing these items is your imagination so you can go as wild or be as reserved as you like. Canvas Prints Canvas prints are one of the most popular lines in personalised gift items for any occasion. Your photo or photos are printed on to high quality natural canvas before being stretched over a gallery grade pine frame. Spacers are added so that the picture will not become distorted cracked or damaged. Special designs are also available for Valentines Day so that you can add a message of love around the picture ensuring that the recipient really cherishes the gift you give them.
This was where young men drew young womens names from a box to commemorate their rite of passage to the god Lupercus. The chooser and chosen would then be paired for one year. These random pairings often led to marriage. The Church of course didnt like the pagan festival so Pope Galasius the bishop of Rome amended this celebration slightly. He filled the box with the names of dead saints instead of girls and allowed both men and women to draw from the box. He believed this would encourage youngsters to copy the ways of the saint for the remainder of the year. On 14th February 496 A.D. Pope Gelasius declared this day to be Saint Valentines Day an official Catholic Holiday. By the early 1700s the United States started celebrating this day of love by swapping love notes and exchanging Valentines gifts for boyfriends girlfriends wives and husbands.
Another option of course is to pick something that they consider a treat -whether this is a nice meal out or a night without the kids arrange something to show you care. New mothers often love the time to even go for a hot bath without the children chasing them so an evening of freedom complete with babysitter and food would probably be a perfect valentines present. New dads often appreciate acknowledgment too so arranging something nice for them can go down well. As children get older they may join you for valentines meals to save money so if you can organise the babysitter (with your partners knowledge) even if the rest of it is a surprise that will make for a wonderful evening. Cards and other items One of the major complaints that people have about Valentines Day is the dizzying array of cards - whether the person in question is buying or receiving them is how many different sizes and costs of cards there are.
